The ConVal Nordic team competed in its first meet on Wednesday, January 20, at the Dublin School’s Nordic Center.
Skiers competed on machine-made snow over three laps of a challenging 1.5 K course. Organizers used wave starts to spread the skiers safely over the trails and required masks and physical distancing at all times except when actually racing.
Co-captains Eva Calcutt and Cami Hendrixson led the small ConVal group in their first competition, coming in 9th and 15th respectively in the girls race. Eme Tyler-Wall (27th) and Grace Phillips (29th) rounded off ConVal’s entrants.
The Cougars will travel to Lebanon on Wednesday, January 27, for their next race.
